A message was sent today to all delegates, speakers and partners of the International Pulp Week 2020, announcing the cancellation of the conference originally due next June in Vancouver (Canada):
“Given the uncertainty facing a large number of events around the world due to the progression of COVID-19, International Pulp Week 2020, that was scheduled to take place in Vancouver from June 14th – 16th, has unfortunately been cancelled.
We have been closely monitoring the development of COVID-19 and its global impacts, which has resulted in travel restrictions, hotel shuts and the prohibition of larger gatherings worldwide. The Fairmont Hotel in Vancouver is currently shut for an 8 week period and they could offer no guarantee that the hotel would be operational come June 14th. We have come to the conclusion that it is in the best interest of everybody involved to cancel the conference for 2020.
We are very disappointed to miss out on the opportunity to connecting with our industry colleagues and partners this year and would like to thank all our speakers, sponsors, attendees, and event partners who have supported the event so far, we really appreciate it.”
